[CANCELED] One-Day Seminar: Civil Rights in America hosted by Mississippi Council for the Social Studies (Columbus, MS)
April 4 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
The Civil Rights Movement in America has endured a difficult and tumultuous path. The Emancipation Proclamation ended the institution of slavery. The Fourteenth Amendment should have guaranteed freedoms, equality and civil rights for all men, however it would take many generations of hardships and court cases for that reality to be achieved. This seminar addresses the complicated road endured by African Americans.
